This research track will address Atlantic herring. Research track assessments evaluate new datasets that can either inform or be used in new or existing stock assessment models. The goal is to develop an improved stock assessment for Atlantic herring that can be used for future management track assessments. This stock will be peer reviewed in the Spring of 2025.
